Good oral health plays a major role in overall well-being. Daily brushing and flossing is important because oral health affects the health of the entire body. Not brushing and flossing daily can allow plaque to build up along your gum line, creating an environment where additional bacteria can accumulate and lead to more serious problems. It is also important that good oral health for children begin at infancy.
AAHP spreads awareness of the impact of oral health on disease prevention and also provides oral health education, information and resources for good oral health at events and presentations throughout Montgomery County.
